AWIS 2017 Conference
13 - 14 July 2017
Heritage Hotel, Auckland
AWIS 2017 – Celebrating Women in Science will provide opportunities for women working in any field of science to develop their skills to benefit both their careers and personal lives, and provide opportunities for them to learn from and network with other women working in science.
The programme will include keynotes and panel discussions with women who are leaders in their fields, workshops for career and personal development, as well as sessions to discuss some of the key scientific issues facing us in the 21st Century. It is our hope that the programme we have developed will appeal to all women with an interest in science, including research scientists, administrators, businesswomen and science educators. We also intend to make the conference accessible and of interest to young women nearing the end of their secondary or tertiary studies, raising the profile of science as a rewarding career option.
